... It does get a bit brittle, though, so it will definitely crack if it gets too much of a shock.

Having fallen on the holster, in winter, onto concrete with temps in the low teens; the holster received only minor surface scratches. I go about the same weight as a KF850.  Any impact that would cause cracking would likely cause damage to the enclosure as well.  It's very durable stuff.

I just stumbled across a product called Kydex that might be good for this. I saw it being suggested for frame protection in a mountain bike tips and tricks video.

Very interesting stuff!  I may have to get some of that just to experiment with and to have around for my next I wonder how I can.... project.  Similarly, the skinny/brittle 2-wire power cable on my sons Radial PZ-pre ToneBone wall-wort had insufficient strain relief and started to fray badly so I got some Sugru:

Worked perfectly for that use and Ive been amazed at how many times since Ive been able to solve a problem with it. Not that Sugru would necessarily be the best solution for speaker corners (though it might just work!) but, like Kydex, is a good tool to have available in ones kit.
